Stroke of a pen, law of the land?

I’m usually not for for quoting Huff-n-Puff, but they published this very interesting piece on the Obama Administration’s intention to rule by executive fiat. If they cannot get their way on guns with Congress through normal (i.e. Constitutional) means, then the Administration plans on going around them…

Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “The purpose of these discussions is to be a productive exchange of good ideas from folks across the spectrum,” one official said. “We think that’s a good place to start.” 

Were this from some site that could be described as part of the “right-wing fever swamp”, I might have my doubts; but coming from Huff-n-Puff? That’s another matter. These are Obama’s peeps! Why would they stir up gun owners with mere fairy tales? Quite simply, they wouldn’t. They are reporting what they likely see as good news.
